The Inquiry Method

By Tina Waddy


Why the inquiry model

Questioning what we see around us.

Space Travel

Sea Exploration

Man’s Origin

Questioning how to make things better.

Medical Industry

Automotive Industry

Robotics

Modern Inventions

Why the Inquiry Model?


From the classroom to the real world

Formulate Predictions

Organize and Interpret Data

Communicate Findings

Build Models

Examine Patterns and Relationships

Classify Information

Draw Conclusions

Interpret Evidence and Experimenting

Strategies That Work


Topics

Do’s

Understand your students skill level and background knowledge.

Know the state-based science standards.

Match your topic to the appropriate inquiry-based strategy.

Don’ts

Stay away from topics like natural selection, or relativity.

Pick topics that are peripherally related to science standards.

Topics


Know your phases

Know Your Phases


Modeling is key

Establish, Enforce, and Model High Standards

Model Effective Use of Time

Model Collaboration with Peers

Model Save and Proper Use of Equipment

Modeling is Key


Work smarter not harder

Collaboration Fuels Problem Solving

Teach and Model Collaboration

Make Expectation for Group Work Clear by Re-teaching Before Each Experiment

Provide ongoing feedback about student interactions

Work Smarter, Not Harder


Supply vs demand

Don’t give too many hints.

Don’t ask too many leading questions.

Supply only what students need.

Supply vs. Demand

  • Students will always look to you for the answers.

  • Students won’t learn how to think.

  • Reinforce the process of thinking and searching.


Support and guidance

Monitor Student Behavior and Comments

Be Prepared to Offer Assistance

Help Students Work Independently

Be a good listener because comments and behavior tell exactly what students know and don’t know.

Anticipated certain student comments.

Provide structure by planning and modeling.

Support and Guidance


Holding students accountable

Holding Students Accountable

Using Accountable Talk


Summing it all up

Summing it all up!
